Best Ultra-fast 50mm Lenses for Bokeh in 2022 Lens Review Best Ultra-fast 50mm Lenses for Bokeh in 2022 August 19, 2022 50mm Lenses Comparison I am always a big fan of 50mm ultra-fast lenses, especially Leica rangefinder M mount lenses.

Kodak Professional Ektachrome E100

Kodak Professional Ektachrome E100 Analog Film Review Kodak Professional Ektachrome E100 February 6, 2021 Before I try this film, I already have a few questions in mind. How does it compare with earlier Kodak Ektachrome films like E100G and E100VS? Secondly, compared with Fujifilm slides, which one is more appealing to me?  Since Ektachrome discontinued in 2012, I from time to time shot with some expired E100G but Fujifilm RDPIII became my luxury film that I will only use in […]

A Bulky Rangefinder Lens but will do you the magic In 2010, I got myself a Canon 50mm f1.2 LTM lens and had an intensively 6 months shooting experience with it with my Leica M8 and Leica film MP camera.
